With baby due Monday, Bears' Charles Tillman likely to face Texans

David Banks

Bears CB Charles Tillman tweeted on Thursday that he'll be on the field this weekend against the Houston Texans, with the birth of his fourth child set for Monday.

Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman is expected to play on Sunday against the Houston Texans, with the birth of his fourth child set to take place on Monday, according to Tillman's Twitter account (via ESPN Chicago).

Tillman made some waves earlier in the week by speculating that he may not participate in the game with his baby due to arrive within the week. However, he seemingly put an end to the controversy on Thursday with the following tweet:

''god, family, football... Baby is coming Monday don't worry I'll be there Sunday.''

The 31-year-old Tillman is in the midst of one of the best seasons in his 10-year career. Through eight games, Tillman has 43 tackles, seven forced fumbles and two interceptions, both of which were returned for a touchdown. Tillman now has seven interceptions returned for a touchdown in his career.

The Bears and Texans will kick off at 7:20 p.m. CT on Sunday night, and the game will be televised nationally on NBC.
